Nintendo has announced that Cadence of Hyrule will release on Nintendo Switch, revealed in today’s Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 presentation.
This The Legend of Zelda spin-off has been created in collaboration with Brace Yourself Games, a name that will be familiar to those that have played their hardcore roguelike rhythm game, Crypt of the NecroDancer.
It’s a crossover, in the sense that the rhythmic action-adventure will allow you to enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer in the setting of The Legend of Zelda series.
You can play as Link or Princess Zelda, as whom you will explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to, once again, save Hyrule. There are 25 The Legend of Zelda tunes that have been remixed, and every beat presents the chance to move, attack, defend, and more. That will help you to stay one step ahead of each enemy or boss.
From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, you must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy, and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat. Equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic The Legend of Zelda items, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer. You must be prepared to face Hyrule’s most wicked bosses, which have been transformed by magic, granting them mighty, new forms.
Cadence of Hyrule will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide this Spring.
